The University offers a unique opportunity for an individual with outstanding research and leadership to join the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP).

The successful candidate is expected to build a research project portfolio to complement existing CVSSP strengths. The centre seeks to appoint an individual with an excellent research track-record and international profile to lead future growth of research activities in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence for Audio-Visual Machine Perception, Autonomous Systems and Big Data Understanding.

We now seek an individual with strong research track-records and leadership potential who can develop the existing activities of CVSSP and exploit the synergetic possibilities that exist within the centre, across the University and regionally with UK industry. You will possess proven management and leadership qualities, demonstrating achievements in scholarship and research at a national and international level, and will have experience of teaching within Higher Education.

CVSSP is one of the primary centres for computer vision & audio-visual signal processing in Europe with over 120 researchers, a grant portfolio of £22M and a track-record of pioneering research leading to technology transfer in collaboration with UK industry. Related to this post CVSSP, in collaboration with the Surrey Centres for Clinical & Sleep Research, has recently been awarded £1.2M equipment funding to support research in sensor networks to monitor & measure people for healthcare in the community. CVSSP forms part of the Department of Electronic Engineering, recognised as a top department for both Teaching and Research: surrey.ac.uk/ee
